Sundance (Wedderlie Mardi Gras x Blue Belle x Blue Rain) is a 31.1 hand 2013 medium pony gelding. I purchased “Kid” as a 4 year old because of his breeding, confirmation, and movement. I was quickly impressed by this young pony’s quiet and kind temperament even at that age, and recognized he was the kind of pony who could be started and trained by a child in a program.
“Kid” has been leased and shown by a junior in my program for the past two years. They spent their first year together training and showing at local and rated shows to prepare for his green year. They began showing in the Greens in January 2019, qualifying for Pony Finals and gaining more show miles in the Greens and Regulars throughout the year.
They had a wonderful Pony Finals debut, placing second in their under saddle group, 17th overall. He scored in the 70; and 80’s in the model.
We have begun putting beginner riders on him, and have been blown away by this young pony’s ability to take care of the littles. He could definitely take a child from cross rails to the division.
“Kid” is a phenomenal mover, with the stride and scope to continue in the Medium Pony Hunters. He is confident and honest over fences at home and away. Solid lead change. Excellent conformation.
He has been well loved and is very affectionate with the kids. Excellent ground manners. Perfect on trails and hacking out. A parent’s and trainer’s dream.
